“Unforgettable!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

I am lost for words! One of THE BEST experiences I have ever had.
It was my first balloon flight and it was incredible. Eight of us in the basket, with Richard, the pilot. From watching the balloon being inflated in the dawn light, to being picked up by the cars at the end........ pure enjoyment!
We soared over the Amber Fort, got within touching distance of villagers on their roofs and grazing peacocks, and had to land in a field because the wind dropped! What an adventure! We were promptly surrounded by villagers so saw more of Indian rural life.
Richard and the crew were all totally professional whilst always friendly, informative and fun.
I will never forget this amazing experience, thank you Sky Waltz!

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

My first balloon ride and it was an unforgettable experience. We cruised over Amber fort and then over the valley. You could see the entire walled city and it was amazing. The whole thing from pick-up from our hotel to dropping us back to meet up with the rest of the tour group was friendly and efficient. Highly recommended.

“A Perfect Way To Start Your Day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

Getting up at 4 30 was well worthwhile to enjoy sunrise over The Amber Fort from the balloon. It was a fabulous experience, well organised and very professionally delivered. Francisco took us for an amazing flight, drifting over first the fort and then the valley. Clearly a very experienced pilot who was both informative and a pleasure to be with. Would thoroughly recommend this company to all. When can I fly again?

“One of the best experiences of my life!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

It is hard to put into words how truly incredible our balloon flight was! After waking early, we were greeted near the Amber Fort by a very friendly crew who served us chai and biscuits as we watched the balloons inflate. Then we were up - all climbing into the basket and meeting our very charming pillot, Richard!

As soon as we took off, I was speechless! As the sun came up, we floated over the majestic Amber fort and surrounding hills. It was magical! Looking down below at the villagers beginning their day was also fascinating, with many running up to their rooftops to wave to us. The flight was peaceful, moving and an experience I will never forget!

Our pilot, Richard, ensured we were safe and comfortable throughout the flight and landed it perfectly. Upon landing, we were greeted by hundreds of friendly and curious onlookers from the surrounding villages. Another precious moment!

All in all, this is an experience you MUST do!! I will remember it forever and will be back to do it again when I'm in Jaipur. Thank you Sky Waltz for this magical experience!!

“A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We treated ourselves to a morning balloon ride and definitely didn't regret it! Our pilot, Richard, was great and made you feel very safe and secure.

The views were absolutely incredible... We had a great view over the Amber Fort and travelled over more rural areas with scattered villages, which was just as amazing. It really gives you a different view and perspective over country and village life in India.

The landing was also a very memorable moment. We landed it what seemed to be a deserted patch of land, only to find a huge group of villagers and children running toward us with huge amounts of curiosity.

An absolutely great experience - thanks Richard & Sky Waltz
